Montana Rancher Sets Up Sites To Help SD Ranchers

MILES CITY, Mont. (AP) — A Montana rancher says more than 130 heifers have been donated to South Dakota ranchers who lost cattle in this month’s devastating blizzard and need to replenish their herds.

Ty Linger, of Miles City, Mont., set up the “Heifers for S. Dakota” Facebook page in an effort to get ranchers in surrounding states to pledge cows to those who lost at least 25 percent of their herd.

He’s close to being established as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and has 17 branches set up in Montana and other states to help with the effort.

He also set up the website helpforsouthdakota.com so people can send monetary donations.
